Following the death of Avicii, The Chainsmokers decided to honor the departed DJ in retrospect. In an emotional event held at the Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, The Chainsmokers duo described the departed DJ as a warm-hearted person who brought joy and excitement to everyone who ever worked with him. The duo; Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart could not stop heaping praises on the Swedish DJ who passed on after struggling with mental illness for a while.
The group is a singing DJ production duo made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Taggart joined the group after he caught wind that one of the band members at the group had left. He says that on meeting Alex Pall who managed the group in New York, they struck a rapport and set to work almost as soon as they set eyes on each other and discussed the basics. The Chainsmokers have been in the news for a couple of years now. They are among the few groups that have sprouted from DJ work. Unlike the typical DJs, The Chainsmokers are performers and singers. In fact, since they decided that it was high time their fans saw their faces and watched them do their thing on stage, they have achieved great feats. They released their first single called Selfie in 2014. It was magically received by the crowds and the industry. So, they set to work and released their first album. It contained several songs that came to hit the charts hard shortly after they were released. Some of the songs that rocked the music scene from the album include, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Roses”, and “Closer”. After several sterling performances in which “Don’t Let Me Down was featured among the top 10 on the Hot 100 Billboard, and “Roses” hitting number 5 on the same charts, “Closer” sealed it off by striking gold and rising to the top of the charts.
Avicii was a talented DJ whose colleagues describe as a warm-hearted person. He passed on, on 20th April 2018. It was reported by his family that the sound craft expert from Sweden took his own life following a bout with mental illness. Avicii had already recorded some songs with Geffen Label. The president of the late star’s record label indicated that the music he had recorded may still be released.
